The container houses are exactly what it seems. Houses made of steel cargo containers that are transported carry goods everywhere in trains, trucks and ships. From these giant blocks of Lego, people build houses of all shapes and sizes.
The smallest container makes a small box of the house of about 100 square feet. Eight larger containers can form a two-story house at a height of approximately 1,400 square feet. Hundreds of small container apartments together can create a huge apartment building.
Why are shipping containers used to make houses, studios, compartments and offices? Well, with about 14 million containers “out of service” in the world, there are many. Playing with giant blocks has a specific gravity!
In addition to elegance, the interest in container houses is part of a broader interest in providing funds through homes and prefabricated units. Many potential owners are looking for low construction and maintenance costs. There is also the perception that container houses contribute to recycling.

If you're working with a small living space, seek out furniture that's space conscious. For example, if you don't have the space for a guest room, buy a sofa or futon that can become a bed. Look for a kitchen table that can fold up when you need extra living space. You never want your home to feel crowded. Space conscious furniture can help a small home feel like a big one.
A great interior design tip is to try to get the opinion of an artist when you're considering making changes. People usually think they know best and make all their own design choices without any input. An artist has trained their eye and they typically can help you make solid design choices.
